Three years ago today this amazing ball of fur entered our lives and got his forever home. The name given to him at the @humanesocietynorthbay
was “Manny” and he was quite an energetic pup in his outdoor kennel.
It was a stroke of luck on all our parts that we ended up there that day, hopeful to find a dog. We had set up a meeting with a rescue dog who was at a foster family’s house. The dog ended up being hyper-aggressive, mounting my back leg from behind. I felt like he was ready to bite at any moment. Feeling defeated and a bit sad, we headed back home to Vallejo. We drove right past the Humane Society there and thought, “oh what the heck”, figuring we might as well see if there was a good match for us there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we found Manny (Jack) it was a clear fit for the temperament, intelligence, and physical readiness we were looking for. Obviously it helped that he was absolutely adorable. They told us that he was micro-chipped already and had been found on the street two times, and had two families already.... Both of his earlier parents never wanted him back. Looking at how long he had already been up for adoption, his chances were running thin that he’d find a home and could be facing an early demise.
We took him home and named him Jack. Immediately he became the biggest single external commitment to time, patience, finances and love our partnership had to endure. He had more energy and prey drive than we had originally assessed, walking him on a leash was insane. I have been around dogs my entire life and couldn’t get through to him.(Continued as a comment below) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
